Amazon eyes its next big health acquisition
Why it matters: This reflects Amazon's emergence as a major player in health care M&A, having recently bested CVS for One Medical. It also may open a new front for antitrust regulators.
- Other suitors for Signify include CVS, Option Care Health and United Health.
Cap table: Private equity firm New Mountain Capital holds a 54.7% stake in Signify, whose board is chaired by NMC's Matthew Holt.
What it does, per Bloomberg: "Companies like Signify intend to improve care and reduce spending by treating patients in lower-cost settings and linking providers’ payments to patient outcomes."
